I pray that this note finds you well and that you have had a blessed and productive week.
To say that this week has been unusual for me is to be sure an understatement, from the weather to events in the world and in our lives; this has been a busy week. I am in the airport in Cleveland Ohio getting ready to board my flight back to Tampa. I have been here since Tuesday morning attending the Joint College of Bishop. I have really been blessed by this conference. Also, it has been really, really cold here. When I arrived on Tuesday morning it was snowing and cold. As I prepare to leave it is snowing right now as I write this email! Please pray I don’t get stuck in Baltimore Washington Airport where I will change planes.
On a more local front let me thank all of you who gave sacrificially on last Sunday in our First Fruit Giving offering. I was so blessed by the excitement and rejoicing in a powerful anointed worship service. It was so rewarding to see the saints of God give enthusiastically. If you have not given it is not too late for you to give your First Fruit Offering.
We continue to be in prayer for Leigh Ann Reid, Dorothy Carswell Walker, Vera Hammond, Andrea Moore, Evelyn Laster. Pray for Margaret Brookins, Denna Pace, Lillian Bludsaw, Hilrie Kemp, Bertha Kemp, Lee Dessie Burney, Gladys Whaley, Richard Pace, Peggy Fredericks, Helen Dorsey and all our seniors on our prayer bulletin.
Finally in preparation for the word and worship this Sunday let me encourage you to read Joshua 10:12-15. I will be preaching from the subject “Pray Big Prayers.” You may read the entire 10th chapter of Joshua, which makes up the context. Come praying and excited about the worship and the word.
